Oral Tradition and Synoptic Verbal Agreement: Evaluating the Empirical Evidence for Literary Dependence
Derico, T. M.

Eugene, OR: Wipf & Stock, 2016 pp. ix + 370. $44.00


Description: New Testament scholars routinely claim that verbal agreement among parallel Synoptic pericopae is a reliable indicator of literary borrowing by the Synoptic Evangelists. In Oral Tradition and Synoptic Verbal Agreement, T. M. Derico presents a critical assessment of that claim through a consideration of the most recent empirical evidence concerning the kinds and amounts of verbal agreement that can be produced among independent performances of oral traditions.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Form, Tradition and Redaction Criticism, Source Criticism
